Analyzing Interacting Phenomena : Word Order and Negation in Basque

  title={Analyzing Interacting Phenomena : Word Order and Negation in Basque},
  author={Joshua Crowgey and Emily M. Bender},
We explore the interaction of sentential negation and word o rder in Basque using a small experimental implemented grammar based on the Grammar Matrix (Bender et al., 2002, 2010) to test the analyses. We fin d that the analysis of free word order (Fokkens, 2010) provided by the Gramm r Matrix customization system can be adapted to handle the Basque fac ts, and that the constructional approach taken in that analysis support s the integration of negation.
